Abstract

This paper gives an overview on photonics for photovoltaic systems. Starting from the spectral and angular distribution of the electromagnetic radiation from the sun, many important optical approaches how to improve the efficiency of solar cells are presented and discussed. Topics include antireflective coatings, various light trapping structures, refractive, reflective and fluorescent concentrators, and components for spectral management. The theoretical background is shortly described and examples of the experimental and also of the commercial realisation are given.
